Extreme Makeover: Closet Edition

This past weekend I visited my sister, who lives with her hubby and new puppy Tex on a ranch in north west  Texas, aka, BFE!  Her house is a super-cute old farm house that is severely lacking in storage space…so she decided to transform her master bedroom closet.

The results are, to say the least, AMAZING…

How was this accomplished?

  1. Everything was taken out of the closet, including the clothes rods and shelves.
  2. The closet was painted.
  3. Hung up the elfa storage system that was ordered from the Container Store.
  4. Organized all the clothes, shoes, and miscellaneous items that needed to go back in the closet with bins and storage boxes from Wal-Mart.
  5. Hung a few pictures to make the new closet cozy.

So BAM…there you have it…what do you think? (I personally think it actually looks like something out of a magazine.)


  1. We Elfa’d our closet last year, and I wholeheartedly agree with its wonderousness, LOL. They do an annual sale where it’s all 30% off.
    Love how your sister’s closet came out, too!

    I think I need to hire the two of yall to come do mine when we get our new house buildt. Just start it off on the right foot!

  3. I love the idea of hanging pictures to make it cute! That would motivate me to keep it clean!

  4. Yall are amazing! What is that paint color? And so happy to have a presence in this wonderful masterpiece 🙂

  5. @Amanda: Your closet looks great! I questioned my sister’s sanity spending sooooo much on the Elfa system, but she assured me she DID get the 30% off and, after it was complete, I think it was WELL worth the price tag…

  6. @Melanie Yates: Sign us up! Actually, Mom did a LOT of the work too…she’s only 30 miles away…I’m just saying…haha…

  7. @Christen: I agree with the picture idea as well…I’m actually trying to clean my master closet out so I can find room to hang some pictures!

  8. @LDubya: She said it was called “Wicker” and she bought it at Ace Hardware.
